Empty Bowls 2015
November 27, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
On the Friday after Thanksgiving, The Idaho Foodbank hosts Empty Bowls in downtown Boise on the Grove Plaza
Throughout the year we collect handcrafted and hand-painted bowls from professional and amateur artisans, students, and studios. The event offers the opportunity to select a unique bowl from thousands and then enjoy a hot bowl of soup generously donated by one of several of our finest local restaurants. While you enjoy your meal, we encourage you to remember that not all our Idaho neighbors are able to meet the basic need of feeding their families. The funds raised by this event helps to provide food assistance to those badly in need this winter.
There will be more than 3,000 bowls to choose from, and bowls start at $10. Free parking in downtown Boise on Friday.
Thank you to Ceramica in Boise and Piggy Pigs Pottery in Meridian for providing the great facilities for making bowls to donate!
